Lady Liberty

Somehow, despite the fact that I've lived less than an hour and a half away from New York City for all of my 28 1/2 years, not once have I gone to see the Statue of Liberty.

Well, not unless you count looking through the binoculars at the Liberty Science Center once when I was in middle school.

So while my nieces were visiting from Colorado this past week, my mom and I decided that seeing Statue of Liberty would be a fun thing to do. We were originally going take the ferry that actually drops you off at the statue, but there was a 1 1/2 hour security line and they were out of tickets to enter the pedestal, so instead we did the Gateway to America cruise, which is a 1-hour cruise around the harbor - it doesn't let you off at the statue, but the line was shorter and spending an hour out on the water enjoying the cool breeze was wonderful on such a brutally hot day!

The closest I've ever gotten to the Statue of Liberty!

We also went around Governors Island:

Hi, Governors Island! I miss you! Let's hang out again soon. ;-)
Align Center

And under the Brooklyn Bridge:

At this point, my older niece decided it would be fun to try to mess up my pictures. That's her hand. Teenagers, I tell ya. :-P I have a teenage niece. That makes me feel so old!

At this point I've more or less resigned myself to the fact that my jewelry business is going to have to take a back seat to my insanely busy schedule for the next couple of weeks. My plan is to focus on signing up for fall craft shows and hopefully schedule some parties. And also finally do something about those sweet little brass butterflies I bought at the bead show more than a month ago. ;-)


  1. It took me six years of living in NY before I visited ms liberty and she was a sight to see. Definitely worth the wait.

  2. so envious of the time you had! hehe, great pictures (:

  3. Oh what great pictures! I think it would be awesome to see The Statue Of Liberty! Sounds like you all had a wonderful day!!

  4. This reminds me of the concept that visitors to your country always see more of it than you do. Which is pretty much the case, heh. Nice photos!
